Hell-O-Tiki - Tiki Twister

I picked up Hell-O-Tiki's Curse of Hell-O-Tiki back in 2012 have been patiently awaiting hearing something new since. From the previews on their CDBaby page this LP sounds like it's just as great as everything they've had so far. Here's one of the tracks off of it.

Evil dominated for the entire first hour, then defenders of scienced rushed in shortly after 5 o'clock. Science rocketed ahead with a commanding lead.

Evil: $150


So the show is over, the outcome won't change, but the station still sorely needs money to offset our operating costs. If you like any facet of what I'm doing, please consider donating.

Terrorsaurs - Atomic Lizard Party

The Terrorsaurs have a rare reptilian take on surf - though tracks such as Avalanche, Himalayan Surf, Moose Call and Apache Bear may suggest otherwise. Perhaps it's true that dinosaurs are warm blooded, which would excuse the cold-themed songs. Perhaps Terrorsaurs eat mooses and bears. I don't know.

Back to business. I believe the special guests are imaginary (I tried looking them up) and the whole thing is pretty fun and goofy, though with a creepy, dark vibe throughout as well.

Grand Kahuna - Grand Kahuna II

The saxophone seems to divide surf fans, but Grand Kahuna know exactly where they lie in the argument: they've got two of them. I really liked their last record, especially their longer takes on songs like Surf Beat. These are all covers again, they're shorter and there's less of them but they make them fresh! Glad to see more from them!

Edit: As pointed out in the comments, they've expanded this one to 8 tracks! Yes!

Team Void - Mexican Bus

According to their bandcamp page, Team Void are dead luchadores cursed to rock the living. It's definitely got a heavy, lurching, mid-tempo sound to it that fits their dead personae, with bits of dead mariachi-esque horns sprinkled amidst it. Give it a listen!
